Until the catastrophic economic crisis of the late 1990s, East Asia was perceived as a monolithic success story. But heady economic growth rates masked the most divided continent in the world - one half the most extraordinary developmental success story ever seen, the other half a paper tiger. Joe Studwell explores how policies ridiculed by economists created titans in Japan, Korea and Taiwan, and are now behind the rise of China, while the best advice the West could offer sold its allies in south-east Asia down the economic river. The first book to offer an Asia-wide deconstruction of success and failure in economic development, Studwell's latest work is provocative and iconoclastic - and sobering reading for most of the world's developing countries. How Asia Works is a must-read book that packs powerful insights about the world's most misunderstood continent.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Praise for Joe Studwell: 'You badly need to read this book. Joe Studwell ... should be named chief myth-buster for Asian business ... his tone is ironic without being cruel ... his mythbusting is as merciless as it is enlightening ... Studwell skewers myths with equal passion and panache. * Financial Times *
